Hamilton Oaks Winery Wedding, San Juan Capistrano: Benet + Ashley
Inspired by the hills of San Juan Capistrano, Benet and Ashley’s wedding was nothing but a dream. As a floral lover, Ashley stole my heart when she said there was going to be floral print on the bridesmaid’s dresses and lots of eucalyptus. When she sent me a sneak peek of her Blush by Hayley Paige wedding dress, I instantly imagined Benet and his beautiful wife dancing in the back fields of Hamilton Oaks.
It was the perfect day to get married at Hamilton Oaks Winery and start their new life together. Within the first moments of being around their family and friends in the bridal suite, I knew this was going to be a day filled with laughter, love, and lots of fun. While good friends played jazz music in the background, Benet set up a table with wine from their Napa trip and handpicked figs from Hamilton Oak’s orchard as a gift/ surprise for his beautiful bride after their first look. Ashley’s reaction was priceless. This was one of the highlights of my day. I couldn’t help but think how wonderful it was to have such a kind and happy couple in front of my camera.
With their experience working on Broadway, they knew how to throw an exciting and entertaining wedding reception! It was fun to capture everyone having a blast dancing, singing and joking around! Benet and Ashley have hearts of gold who went above and beyond to make sure their friends and family were comfortable on their own wedding day. I am extremely honored and thankful for M.E. Brides like Ashley, who welcome me into their lives. Ashley and Benet, you are loved by so many.
